Header Bar?

Is the header bar (Ex Mod type) in the attached photo in any way similar to the NAS bar? Will the NAS tops work with it? Can I add the snap?

Thanks!

Chris, the NAS header is more like a sidways U channel than the ex mod C channel.

Check with Badger I think they have a euro style header that will work with a nas top.

The style that you have on your vehicle is designed to clap down over a round filler tube with cam adjusters. Any of the tops we offer are not designed for that style. We have a euro style header bar that has the goove on the front edge and bolts to the windshield frame. It also does not have the snaps on the tips that are used on the NAS header bars. It all depends on what your plans are for a top.

If you are planning on using a gutter kit then you should use the Euro spec. header bar. If you are going to use a Bestop then you will need to use a NAS header bar with the snaps on the tips.
